Flexible Child Care Solutions, Fast
Quality child care is a critical need, whether your employees are working at home, in the office, or a combination of the two. Today, child care options must be flexible enough to accommodate, and easy enough for you to implement quickly.
Why Tuition Subsidies
Boost Employee Productivity
Forty-six percent of working parents say supervising their children at home negatively impacts productivity. By providing child care, you're empowering employees to focus 100% on the job, whether they work at home or in the office.
Compete in a Tight Job Market
Competing for top talent has never been more difficult. Employer-sponsored child care is a coveted benefit.
Preserve Key Talent
Three million women left the workforce in 2020-2021 because of a lack of child care. Employer-sponsored child care reduces turnover by 65%.
A Fast, Flexible Solution for Critical Child Care Needs
Bright Horizons Tuition Subsidies address a critical employee concern with a scalable solution that can be up and running in weeks. Whether employees need one day of child care at a local center or full five days, this program offers accommodations. If, a few months from now, they find the need for more or less care, the program can slide with them. Plus, there are no capital expenses — you're not building a child care center on site, but subsidizing tuition at existing centers — and no regional limitations. Whichever major city in the U.S. your employees call home, it's likely we have a center nearby.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services advises child care should cost no more than 7% of a parent's income to be affordable — but the average cost of child care in the U.S. is about 11% of the median two-income household and 35% of a single parent's income. Costs vary by location — in Seattle, child care can cost 62% of the city's median single-parent income. At that rate, many parents are leaving the workforce, while others need that fraction of remaining income to pay rent or buy groceries. Neither option is acceptable. Bright Horizons Tuition Subsidies offer child care your working families can afford, with 20% off tuition at centers across the country, plus enrollment priority at no additional cost.
Bright Horizons is the world's leading and most trusted education and care company. Our top-tier centers are trusted by families nationwide — earning 98% parent satisfaction for care and education. By helping your employees afford the best child care available, you are giving them the peace of mind they need to focus 100% on the job. And it's good for your business in other ways, too. According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, when employers provide child care assistance, employee absences decrease by 30% and turnover falls by 60%. A study by Care.com reveals 67% of working parents would be more loyal to their current job if they were offered employer-subsidized child care, and that percentage shot up to 75% among parents with children under four years old.
